Greece-based industrials conglomerate Mytilineos Energy & Metals has entered a consortium with Siemens Energy to construct a 560MW CCGT power unit at the Adamów Power Plant in Turek, Poland.

The Adamów Power Plant is a 600MW gas-fired power plant, owned and operated by Polish developer ZespoŁ Elektrowni Patnow-Adamow-Konin (ZE PAK Group), that was closed at the beginning of January 2018.

An engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract has been signed with ZE PAK’s subsidiary, PAK CCGT, to construct the 560MW CCGT plant.

The plant will be made up of one gas turbine and one condensing steam turbine, using a closed, wet mechanical draft cooling tower arrangement, as well as a gas installation in the power plant area with accompanying infrastructure.

The PAK CCGT project is expected to be finished by the second quarter of 2027, and other Polish and international contracting companies will be engaged throughout the development. In a press statement, Mytilineos noted that it has already signed an EPC contract to construct another 560MW CCGT in Grudziadz, also in consortium with Siemens.

In the statement, Mytilineos said: “CCGT projects are becoming essential throughout Europe, for their crucial role in energy efficiency and security. Additionally, as gas is expected to long term remain as a transitional fuel, it acts supplementary to the country’s energy mix, alongside renewables.”

According to the think tank Ember, Poland is the biggest emitter of fossil fuels in the EU, deriving 79% of its electricity from them. Coal made up 70% of overall power generation in 2022, and the previous government’s agreement with trade unions to keep coal mining until 2049 has made it harder to phase-out the fuel.

However, Prime Minister Donald Tusk’s administration has shown more willingness to accelerate Poland’s energy transition and think tank Instrat said this shift could lead to renewables accounting for as much as 92% of energy production in Poland by 2040.
